On this page of Dave Angell Trains you can see part of my collection of Triang / Pedigree / Lines Bros or International Model Aircraft Ltd push along animals - the same range but with different names of the company!
My collection started in March 1961, the 2nd to be precise! For my first birthday I was presented with ‘Neddy’ and his cart. He was played with for years until retiring to my parents loft and later my own.Re-discovered in the early 2000’s he was taken to a ‘Tri-ang Society’ show, as a visitor, and created quite a stir. A few years later and a dog was found in a local antique store – that was the beginning of today’s collection.The animals are either built around a mild steel frame covered with mohair and stuffed with woodwool, or molded in plastic.
